Elvis Presley spent most of his final years with long-term girlfriend Linda Thompson. The King dated the former Miss Tennessee between 1972 and 1976 and they would often travel together when he was on tour. Now 70-year-old, Linda regularly shares photos of her and Elvis together on her Instagram account.
But now Linda has come across one tour photo of herself with Elvis that she’s never seen before.
The picture shows The King dressed in one of his famous jumpsuits during a 1975 tour just two years before his untimely death.
Linda wrote: “Once in a blue moon, a photo surfaces that I’ve never seen before – even after all these many, many years!
“Thank you Robert Klein & Jay Gordan for unearthing this treasured memory for me!”

Linda added: “Gotta say… I love the wild fashion statements! As always, I was accompanying my man on tour…7/10/1975 Charleston West Virginia. Happy March everyone!”
Last month, Elvis’ former girlfriend wished The King’s daughter Lisa Marie Presley a very happy 53rd birthday.
Sharing touching pictures with her from her childhood, Linda wrote: “I am wishing everything wonderful for you @lisampresley on the occasion of your birthday today…and every single day of your life!
“You are such a big and beautiful part of my memories with your beloved daddy.”

Linda added: “And I hope you know my heart is always with you and I am always here for you. I have always loved you and I always will…Happy birthday!”
Last year before the pandemic put the world in lockdown, the 70-year-old shared some facts about Elvis’ webbed toes and dyed hair.
Asked to reveal something that wasn’t well known about The King, Linda said: “There’s a lot about Elvis that people don’t know. Most of it is very, very good.
“He was an incredible human being, very generous – generous to a fault.”

Linda started by pointing out that Elvis was a twin, with his identical brother Jesse Garon Presley being stillborn 35 minutes before him on January 8, 1935.
The 70-year-old then went on to confirm the rumour that The King did in fact have webbed toes.
Speaking with Reel Talker she said: “He had twin toes, which meant that his second toe from the big toe and the third toe were conjoined up to what would be the knuckle.
“And I used to tease him a lot about having webbed toes! So he had twin toes. That’s something most people don’t know.”
Asked if Elvis used gel for his incredible hair, Linda replied: “Not really. [He would use] hair spray and hair dye.
“He was more a natural blonde, a dirty blonde. He died his hair black for drama.”
Linda and Elvis broke up in late 1976 because she wanted a more normal life, but the two remained friends until he died less than a year later.
After Linda, The King briefly dated Mindi Miller before his last serious girlfriend in Ginger Alden.
